Time to start podcasting proper. So here it is, "Episode 1" of an actual podcast meant for our listening audience!
All the links I mention are in the description below:
A lot of us complain about how nasty are Twitter and Facebook. I'm one of them.
We know about "activist" judges. We know about the activist mainstream "fake news" media.
Enter the "activist businesses" such as Google, Apple, Facebook, and Twitter. [Microsoft probably not too different, except they aren't too involved with the social media arena and their colors have been showing too much.]
What these activist businesses are doing is bad for freedom of speech, it's bad for America, it's bad for us, but it's also bad for them and bad for business. These companies (Facebook and Twitter are only two big players but we can list here Apple, Google, PayPal, GoDaddy and a host of other anti-liberty players) believe they are "too big to fail" and they can afford to treat conservatives like the enemy.
They deplatformed Alex Jones. He was too extreme, they said. Hm? Really? Did he go out and club people on the head? Antifa did but Antifa is still on Social Media. Did he try to break into someone's home while their wife was home alone like Antifa did with Carlson Tucker? No, but Antifa did and Antifa is still on social media, right?
So who's "extreme now"?
But Alex Jones used "hate speech", they say...
Hate speech? As defined by who? I think it's hate speech when Louis Farrakhan calls the Jews "termites". But he's still on social media, right?
I can give so many other examples...
Did they stop with Alex Jones? Nope. They only started with him (Milo was deplatformed even before him).
Then they came for Laura Loomer. She had over 265,000 followers on Twitter. She #Loomered the whos-who of all the familiar SWAMP creatures fake news media has been protecting for so long. We cheered! But are we following Laura on alternative platforms now that she has been banned on Twitter?
Then they shut down Liz Corkin (a Christian Conservative woman with over 100K followers on Twitter). They shut down our own Minnesota adorable deplorable Marni Hockenberg - I can go on and on.
And then came the GAB (www.gab.ai) mayhem!
GAB has been booted off all known platforms because of the Pittsburgh shooter who had an account on GAB. Wow, like all kinds of shooters before him haven't had social media account? YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS STUFF UP!
So GAB keeps on fighting!
They are up and running. Opening an account on GAB is a way of sticking it up to Twitter and Facebook. So go ahead and do it even if you don't use the account right now. You will probably to need it if you start posting pro-Liberty, Anti-Sharia stuff, trust me!
But it goes beyond that - GoDaddy, the huge hosting company booted GAB off their platform. But Epik, also a hosting company, accepted GAB.
So guess what. I had some business to take care of today. A domain name to purchase. So I created an account with Epik and took my business there, not to GoDaddy.
No company is bigger than the market. The market, you and I as customers create demand, not companies.
So if you need hosting and domain services, consider dropping GoDaddy or another obvious anti-liberty activist leftist business and take your business to Epik! And btw, their customer service is BETTER than GoDaddy and that is the truth. In fact, EVERYTHING they offer is better than GoDaddy.
[I am not affiliated with Epik and benefit nothing except moral satisfaction from sending customers their way.]
Let me know if you need further consulting on similar IT related issues, I've navigated these waters for 10+ years and have gained some experience in my dealings with tech companies both as a customer and as a provider through my small business.
Here's a blog piece on why Epik accepted GAB (https://epik.com/blog/why-epik-welcomed-gab-com.html)
